Actually that's a pretty good idea! I could post a note on it saying that all my notes are inside the computer

BUt yeah, putting cork boards on the outisde of a case sounds like it might be a legitimate good idea, I think I'll do that next time I work in an office without separators or posting boards, thanks for the idea.

Ok, after some internal debating, I've decided to publicize the five contest finalists (a collaboration between Madmat and myself). From most ugly to least ugly (though it doesn't make a difference, as all finalists have an equal chance of winning), here are your Ugliest Case 2007 finalists:

1st: (cf)Eclipse's second entry, with the watercooling shaz and the big cardboard duct -- this is the most ghetto and ugly of the 'cases'. Madmat and I both agree: get that thing into a (real) case!

2nd: the_dope_chaud's cardboard-clad case. Is that a piece of stick-on woodgrain-print vinyl that I see? B'getto, yo.

3rd: Cooldude's cardboard case. Cardboard seems to be a theme among the top three - it seems it would be a good idea for hopefuls to keep cardboard in mind for next year's 'Ugly Case' contest.

4th: Werty316's "Fist-Modded" Case. That's just an ugly case, even if it wasn't missing a couple bay covers. I can see why you'd want to punch it. How do those speakers sound? You're in like Flynn.

5th: Slugbug's "Custom Ventilation Holes". I remember the first time I took a power drill to a case. It wasn't pretty, but at least it was on the bottom where no one could see. It didn't take long before that case was history. Perhaps you'll soon be able to commit that case to the landfill as well.

If you're not on this list -- don't despair! You've still another chance to win some shiny new shazbot in Contest 4, and show off your writing skill in the process. A pair of fantastic ASUS motherboards are up for grabs. Thanks to everyone for entering; it's you who made this contest interesting.

Rob will be announcing the contest winner within 24 hours, randomly selected from one of the five finalists.

Thanks to everyone who entered. There were no losers here, just people with ugly cases. Who's name was pulled out of the virtual hat?

Grats!

I sent your e-mail as soon as I posted you as the winner. Maybe it went to your junk folder? I will just PM you instead.

Yes, there is a virtual 'hat' -- a PHP script that selects the winner. So this was really and truly random.
